Liquifile is a new file browser for Mac OS X. It replaces the file size and date columns with different size dots. Larger dots positioned more to the right in the window represent larger files sizes with a newer date. It makes it really easy to scan a window and select files in that window visually.

It also has an extremely quick file search/filter in the window that is in many cases much easier to use than Apple's slower Spotlight search. It grabs results by the file information and displays it in a tree structure that is flat and easy to scan.

hi strob,
sorry for this! you are right: Liquifile 1.8 requires OS X 10.5 or higher. For OS 10.4 you can still download version 1.7.1 on our website www.liquifile.info.

thanks for the comment and all the best!

The idea behind Liquid Browsing is truly revolutionary, just have a look at the various videos on the LiquiFile website. Comparing the the current version of LiquiFile to those videos, you'll may think the current version of the application is somewhat basic, but looks are deceiving. This is indeed a very welcome addition to the Finder, which currently does none of the things in which LiquiFile excels, such as no-linear file selection on various criteria, quick overview of the contacts of all nested-folders etc. It takes some time to ‘see' the idea behind Liquid Browsing, but when you do see it, you'll wonder why this wasn't done before.
That said, and while this release is a very welcome update, I can't wait to see more of the exciting features implemented, as seen in the Liquid Browsing videos. Oh, and how about a version of LiquiFile for iPhone? :-D

I'm still waiting for a registration code. I'm assuming they've been tied up with CeBit, but that's ended now.

It appears that if your list of files is larger than the window, if you move your mouse above (or below) the window it acts as tho' you are hovering over your files (as if they were not scrolled out of the active port).

Excellent news -Liquifile is now really mature (and I'm a happy user).
My wish for the soon-to-come v. 1.6: that the dots become colored according to the Finder colors, and one can even set a color by control-clicking on the file...

Liquifile's file filter in the window is much faster than Apple's Spotlight. When searching in Spotlight, it breaks things down into confusion categories of file types and it keeps moving and moving until the file search is completed. Liquifile's filter keeps things displayed as if they were all in one tree structure, making finding the specific file you want WAY faster.

And the visual display of file size and date by round dots is a great idea. Once you get used to this format, you can scan and find documents visually much faster than searching for dates represented by lettered timestamps.

The only thing I really want is Finder integration. I want to replace the normal Finder with Liquifile's interface, because I often find myself ending up back inside the Finder -- a place I'd rather not be after getting used to being in Liquifile.

I can see two features here that separate this file manager from the others: (1) Point-and-focus, which is a lot like KDE in Linux; and (2) with the side-panel open, just point and get file info. THAT is a feature that Apple should build into its Finder!

But, seriously, Carsten, there are some fundamental interface features missing here, and I think you need to justify why you've left them out of something you're charging for. It's the only ethical thing to do.

Where is the toolbar? No buttons to press? No quick way to return to the previous menu? This is somehow not in accordance with Apple's human interface guidelines. There's no way anybody should pay for this thing until basic interface features are included, or at least until a satisfactory explanation for their omission is offered.

Ethical? That's silly talk.

Also, I don't think Apple's human interface guidelines specifically require "buttons to press".

dear reviewer,

sorry for my not so fluent english...but i will try to explain, why liquifile is the way it is:

reviewer: "...and I think you need to justify why you've left them out of something you're charging for. It's the only ethical thing to do."

carsten: well, liquifile is a lot about using screenspace in a wise way. i never liked all those buttons. i think in a future version we will have a configurable toolbar. but trust me: all the funktionality is there:

reviewer: "1. No quick way to return to the previous menu?"

carsten: do you know how to navigate with keyboard shortcuts? try it...it is very fast. liquifile can do it. of cause you can also do it by clicking on "go to" in the menue bar if you rather would like to click...

for creating new folders and some other functionality, try the context menue (control-click or right click). this way you get the functionality even faster than buttons and you do not blow up the interface.

well, did you find out, what "flat browsing" is? are you aware, what you can do with a visual life filter on a tree? you did not even mention the most important things about liquifile. maybe a short look at the readme file could help. we also will provide some documentary movies soon hat will help you to really get into it more easy.

please also let us know, what you are missing. we either have strong reasons for it, or you will see it in the next versions of liquifile ;-).

"Funktionality" is the best result of non-native English speaking ever.
